like to mention, andrew, who i hope i get to meet. i mention them all the time. he is from los angeles. was frustrated and spent some 300 -- three hours trying to navigate the website him in california and was not pleased he had to wait three hours. after three hours, he ended up saving $6,000. while no one should have to wait three hours to find out if they will qualify for quality affordable health care, everyone wants to save $6,000 and that is why we're here. we want americans to save money on health insurance and we want the millions of americans who could never say they could afford to buy health insurance let alone save money, have access to the doctors and hospitals, so important for their children and themselves. we are here to say we will do everything we can to make our health security law work and work well. is an opportunity to improve it, we will work with the president and our colleagues in congress to make that happen. understand speaker banner the bill theed house republican majority will put him a floor of the house tomorrow is not for the purpose of improving the new
on a non-political terrorist. for example, the navy yard shooting. and this month, the los angeles airport. and then of course we have the lone wolfs going all the way back, if you will, to 1968 wins rhanhogs iran -- when si sirhan assassinated bob kennedy because he was motivated by anti-israel sentiment at the time. also, all of us remember the who bomber -- unabomber conducted a campaign for many years. --the radicalized technological society at the time. all remember what happened in oklahoma city, 1995. the attack on the federal building when 168 people were killed and 800 wounded. course, the most recent, the fort hood shooting, that nidal malik hasan perpetrated at the time. so again, when we talk about the lone wolf, the individual acting on his or her own, -- incidentally, we do have an increasing number of women who are involved. we can look at the nonpolitical motivation and then we the political motivation. fundamentally, i think what we are going to discuss today are basically the two sides that we have to consider. but mostly the political side. we can spend a semester at l

did not do what the government expected. in los angeles there was the public disorder and intelligence division that compiled information and used it for political purposes. information that is collected for law enforcement and security purposes is often used on political groups. >> if i could provide some perspective. the fbi operates through mandates that are codified in statute laws written by our congress and signed by the president into law. that process has produced, appropriately and necessarily, oversight, not just in the executive branch of government itself. the department of justice is obviously in the fbi as well. but also with the congress and through the court system and the judicial branch. that is to make sure that they and and day out, the work we are doing -- day in and day out, the work we are doing is representing the people of the united states and is what is required at that point in time. they have an expectation that we use those tools. they have an eagle expectation that we balance the use of those tools -- equal expectation that we balance the use of those too
back if you want to. the numbers are on the screen. anthony is in los angeles. caller: hi. i remember when i was a child, i is only 2 1/2 years old, and was standing with my mom and father, and i was a little child, so i do not know what was going on. andother fell to her knees both parents started weeping uncontrollably. it was not until years later with what had happened, and it they said the president was shot and killed. host: did your parents ever talk about that after they saved a scrapbook of some of the headlines and things like that afterward? somber andy were quiet about it, and it was a wasry from a child, when i a child. i finally asked them, put two and two together, and my mother started crying again. host: in your own life, what are those moments where you cannot forget where you were, 9/11 for a lot of people? is that the top of your list? caller: exactly, those are definitely moments that are in my psyche and will be with me the rest of my life. host: let's go to ohio, this is russell. caller: hi. i was born six days before kennedy was assassinated, and i remembered,
on international affairs in los angeles. but his main expertise is centered on iran and the middle ast. i'm delighted that he has taken he time to come today and talk to us about some of the critical issues of the moment. > can you hear me? i'm not sure i need a mic. if you can hear me, let me know. i really want to say thank you to paul for inviting me to speak. he is my pal from 30 years -- some 30 years. he is also an extraordinary distinguished expert on the middle east and frankly patriotic american. he disappeared for seven years working for uncle sam in northern virginia and doing important sorts of work. we have been friends for a long ime. his knowledge is remarkable. an expert as someone from out of town -- i'm sitting at this table. i'm talking to congress in berkeley. member of the house foreign relations committee and the middle east subcommittee. when you get face time with someone of that level of exposure back in washington, it is something to be treasured. just came back from iran two days ago. you want to talk to someone about iran, he is the one to talk to. finally, a p
of state to seek the white house. that is the story in "the lost angeles -- the los angeles times. in october she gave her strongest indication to date that she is considering another white house bid. that is the story in "the -- in "the los angeles times." we would go to debbie in washington. do you think this is something democrat should be concerned about in 2014? caller: i don't. i was on the individual market. 740 seven dollars per month for health insurance. i was upset because the me reallycompany gave crappy options. so i got on the website and i -- before i had $5,000 in deductibles. they would not pay for anything until i spent $5,000. -- $747 paying $747,000 per month. 70% of everything. it is $29 per month cheaper. it cutstax rebate and it down $200. paying $398 per does it say to you that democrats up for reelection in 2014 are reintroducing legislation to delay parts of the health-care law? picture of jeanne shaheen. why aren't people telling the story e there are lots of people like me, i'm sure, who are on the individual market. i did not think i was going
with us. we want to turn to paul richter at the los angeles times joining us to talk about iran's nuclear talks. thank you. it has been reported that nuclear talks with iran failed to reach an agreement. how did the fallout happen? there were rising expectations that the seven countries have met in geneva at the end of last week, it seemed like a deal was within reach. ians, the british said so. there was turbulence at the end on saturday, the french foreign minister laurent fabius gave a radio interview and said he had problems with the draft of an agreement being circulated. he said he wanted more limits on a heavy water reactor that the iranians are developing. ofwanted firmer disposition medium enriched uranium that iran has. by late saturday night, it looks powers, including the u.s., the europeans, china, and russia, had agreed generally on approach. but iran could not sign off on it. the iranian team said they needed to go back to rouhani -- to tehran and get clearance for a deal. some diplomats are saying that one obstacle was that iran wanted an exclusive commitment from the six
is famous, pebble beach. and then you get down to los angeles, and the two great harbors of america side by side together form the largest harbor system in this nation and you can argue whether it's the largest in the world. the port of los angeles, represented by congresswoman hahn and port of long beach, side by side there in the los angeles area, long beach represented by mr. lowenthal. those ports are one of the major engines of international trade and economic growth. and from those ports, those great cargos move on the railway harborsghways and other in orange county and great harbor of san diego, which is important for the military. any time you happen to get to san diego, you will see the aircraft car years there from the u.s. navy and other critical equipment and ships of the u.s. navy. all of that is important. but here in my district -- i'm oing to put up another map dch and this is where i really get involved. this is a map of obvious san francisco bay here with harbor of san francisco, port of san francisco, the port of oakland and the contracosta coast but as delta. into th
of international engagement in a credible and reliable manner. interestingly, mr. speaker, the los angeles less times just reported that several of the 14 new states, united nations human rights council are widely considered to be human rights -- by human rights advocates as violates of personal freedoms. the new countries elected to the human rights council are russia, china, cuba, saudi arabia, algeria and vietnam. again, considered to be by human rights advocates as violators of personal freedoms. in view of this development, it concerns me that our own administration has downgraded the status of the state department's ambassador-at-large for religious freedom. this is an important position. it is a reflection of who we are as a nation. also, the position of the special envoy to monitor and combat anti-semitism remains unfilled in our government as well. i would like to see us elevate the principle of religious freedom as a core measure of civil society and diplomatic intent, institutionalizing this is a priority with the department of state and building upon the very commendable work of our
friend, the chief barbarian handler in the chinese military, that you won't trade los angeles for taipei. that, i think, in many ways is the central role of limited missile defenses that are practice call. as to why -- i don't know how many reames of good will and paper have been spent on trying to convince the russians that we would like nothing better than to do things which really no kidding, cross our hearts, hope to die, will demonstrate the unsurprisingly, maybe a few hundred intercepter missiles, will not defeat thousands of russian ones, and you usually get a variation on no or no follow-up by colorful adjectives. >> maybe they'll change. >> general cartwright, follow on the point about demonstrating capacity and political will of the alliance to deal with the directs challenges of today and tomorrow. you talked about mobility, increased mobility of allied forces. i have the sense that increased mobility could be dmop straited for expedition their operations, but i really wonder if the alliance is properly configuredded today and positioned today to deal with fast breaking consti
their debate, look for coverage on c-span two this morning. lori, los angeles, hello. i have a question to ask the representative. strongly about social security, medicare, and medicaid. my husband has cancer and epilepsy. if you cut social security, medicare, medicaid, my husband would literally die. first, know that many discussions on that deal with future programs and what they would look like. we would not do anything to harm you or your husband right now. that. there about are some changes that can be made and need to be made to preserve it for the future. with the money in these funds scheduled to run out, depending on the program you are talking about, the three years for social security disability, 10 years for medicare part a, social security is more like 20 years, it is time and it is prudent to take steps to preserve them. we cannot just keep kicking the can down the road, but people need to rest assured whether you are a senior citizen or a person on disability or social security or medicare that the people here as we have these discussions are going to be very, very conscience of
of the nation's top hospitals, including the mayo clinic in minnesota, cedar sinai in los angeles, and children's hospitals in seattle, houston, st. louis are cut out of most plans sold on the exchange. in most cases the decision was about the cost of care. here's how obamacare is hurting one family. in seattle, the region's predominant insurer, premiere blue cross, decided not to include the children's hospital as an in network provider, except in cases where the service sought cannot be obtained anywhere else. children's nonunique services were too expensive given the goal of providing affordable coverage for consumers. the spokesman said in an email. which brings up the point, the president wants to provide everybody health insurance, and some of us, like me, were more concerned with getting them quality health care that was affordable. all this talk about insurance, insurance, insurance. the bigger more important question should have been can we get them health care they can afford? one of the biggest promises was, it will lower most everybody's cost. it turns out that was not true at all.
but something we need to examine given what happened in los angeles. >> would you say there is a sort of anger at the government that was behind this? >> that is one thing we have to determine is part of the investigation. there have been some plumber larry things we have learned. -- there have been some pulmonary things we have learned. we have to get a full picture of the manning custody of understand what his motive might have been. it certainly does not justify the killing of a brave tsa injured or others who were injured. no feelings of the government could possibly justify these kinds of actions. >> you are scheduled to go to trial interior weeks over the the merger of american airlines and united. how will you settle this and what are the expectations? >> this is a matter that we have been in touch with the industry, with the airlines that and express concerns about the potential reduction in competition that a merger would potentially impose. i'm not going into any detail of the discussions that we are engaging in but i will say that they are ongoing. what we have tried to focus on
rarely see mrs. kennedy. present at the democratic national convention in los angeles. because of the difficulties --ween her 1956 presidency pregnancy, did mrs. kennedy feel she could not bear losing another baby? >> she had a terrible record in her pregnancy. she had lost a baby to miscarriage in 1965, then as this person points out, she lost a stillborn little girl in 1956, right after that very hot, not air-conditioned -- so she was really just afraid to go. i think what this person is referring to is from april onward in 1960 she did tend to stay at home, though she did go with the future president, president of be, to a parade in october 1960 through manhattan, the canyons of manhattan. she was definitely with child. the child would be john junior. a sense ofys had humor. bradley also has -- have a wife was with child. right after the election was one in hyannisport, he said to the two women, you can take the pillows out, we have one. -- won. >> what role did she play? we talked about -- at what point did john kennedy realized he had a political asset? paris inhey went to
on the alliance website after you get out of here. >> thank you, ed. .. >> i live in west los angeles where it's not only important to look healthy, you have to look good as well. [laughter] so one of the striking features was that a free-standing surgical center in 90210, just around the corner from the gucci store, in fact, was a total price of $3500 for the cataract whereas the two largest west los angeles facilities -- one an academic institution and the other a very large community hospital -- the academic institution was about 6,000, the large community hospital was 11,000. for me as a individual who paid a 20% coinsurance, the benefit was direct to me in the sense that the coinsurance on the 3500 saved me 2-$3,000 out of pocket and it also saved them money in the sense that they paid the 3500 and not the expanded fee. so i'm telling you this because my experience, although it was relevant for me, doesn't make much of a dent in these two high-priced institutions, and it didn't save that much money for anthem. but now what we're seeing unfolding and what you've heard today from kroger and
of the los angeles marine corps reserve unit, collected and distributed 5,000 toys to needy children. since the program's adoption nationally, as toys for tots in 1948, the u.s. marine corps reserved toys for tots program has collected and distributed close to 500 million toys. monday, i had the honor of attending the center county toys for tots kickoff breakfast chaired by retired marine major. 2013 marks the 7th center county toys for tots campaign, organized by the nitly leather next attachment 302. about 350 collection points around center county will accept toys from infants to teenagers until december 15. this program has grown with the support of area food banks, fire departments, businesses and hundreds of local volunteers. . mr. speaker, over the past 10 years marines have distributed an annual average of 15 million toys per year. bringing toys to an average of more than 6.3 million less fortunate children each year. we thank you in more ways than one every day, marines. and i thank you for supporting these children in need. thank you, mr. speaker. i yield back the balance of my ti

. that activity going on with the headquarters. denise joins us from los angeles on the republican line. go ahead. caller: eyes for taking my call. -- thanks for taking my call. i want to say how encouraged i am that ken cuccinelli is making such a great showing. we hope he can pull it off at the last minute. campaigning in this war on women , these tired, playbook rhetoric . please don't let this happen to the people of virginia. that by itself is an encouragement from the rest of the country that people can actually think and look at the pictures -- and make an intelligent decision. activity ands some and gettingting some attention at the ken cuccinelli headquarters. that is likely to delay any start of her marks from the attorney general. we are following your comments. #c-spanchat. next call is phyllis this evening from lagrange, illinois, on the independent line. caller: he is not just a republican but an all-american boy. i would like to see him run for president. believe it or not, dennis kucinich. that would be a wowie. we have to take ourselves back. he is a good honest man and so is den
you're a schlomo six pack sitting in tel aviv or in riyadh. he was living in los angeles, we nuked, he won't even let us stay in his guest room. i understand that. i really do. i believe in our form of government, i have some trust in the elected officials, maybe than angela merkel does than others. this is a serious issue the government has been involved in since day one. the first set of negotiations in well. went very wendy sherman who was leading our negotiating team didn't details.any he iranians showed up with a detailed power point presentation. this wasn't ahmadinejad clowning around. showed up with some serious suggestions and everybody walked way from the meeting feeling that this was time well spent. in both countries, this, again, is going to be interesting. they're going be naysayers in countries. there are people in congress say, aha, see, the sanctions are working. it squeezed iran into compliance. up the sanctions, got them on the ropes, they're on the run. sanctions more. wendy sherman, again, the person from the state department the negotiations said she does not beli
partners. >> we have time for one more question. >> los angeles times, your line is open. >> thanks very much for taking the call. think onlytary, i about a third of the people who are being -- deemed eligible to buy products on the market places would qualify for subsidies. i wonder if that is different than what you had anticipated and is that a cause for concern that presumably those people may be paying higher prices and are less likely to actually buy a plan as the december 15 date approaches. >> what we may be seeing are people who probably had insurance coverage before in or ifay, shape, or form, they did not find it to be choices they have never had before, and they are likely to be first in the door. for some of the uninsured and lower income underinsured, we still have outreach and education efforts to go. a lot of what our folks tell me on the ground is that as they ,alk to potential consumers some have a pretty low financial literacy and are going to take several steps before they really come into the market. but i don't find it is urging at this point that people have gone t

as a tea party group in may of 2009 here in los angeles. born from the tax burdens from within the american recovery and reinvestment act. a government too big makes each citizen small, we thought. the first amendment would offer a platform for us to speak politically. but we were wrong. our government unsheathed its sword, the i.r.s. the i.r.s. did what tirne does, threaten and control. the questionnaire sent to us were consuming but their intent to test our resolve. but liberty prefers to stand and to be heard. we held more than 85 events in two grires donations drop and costs rose. we could afford fewer speakers, rallies and handouts. in july, 2012, we withdrew our application for tax exemplet status but the i.r.s. after 20 months of delays and read tape. we must now pay nonprofit taxes in california, the minimum is $800 annually. we have little money but more people. on june 4, 2014, the ways and means committee heard our voice. ow our voice is stronger and more here. here's their letter. on june 4, 2013, we told our story to the ways and means committee. we did not plead the fifth. we
